So, you know how you get an idea and get so jazzed about it, you get yourself all worked up over it? Maybe it was a New Year’s resolution, or maybe you were going to start a new diet, or a huge redecorating project. You get the idea.

I liked your review of Tower's Alchemist and included a quote from it in the front matter of Dark Rift. I'm so excited about it.

Awww yay! I'm so glad you're enjoying the series. These books are very near and dear to me. I just know you'll love the lady knights' book!

Has your second book been released yet? I just added it as to-read today.
